Moments from the 2018 Denver Women’s March
Denver photographer Dave Russell spent much of 2017 documenting the local social justice protests that sprouted in fierce flurries of defiant signs and raised fists after the election of Donald Trump.
“I showed up at the first Muslim ban protest at DIA and I was all in after that,” he says. “I am pretty much documenting the resistance.”
His photos, which he shares on Facebook (please give him credit if you share), repeatedly have caught our eyes here at The Colorado Independent because of the way they capture within the swirl of color and movement, a moment of stillness, the fleeting individual expressions of resolve, anger, joy, and the realization of the power of one among many.
Russell was out among the tens of thousands of women and men who rallied at the Denver Women’s March Saturday, and he shared some of his photos with us.
“I am mostly just trying to tell the story through smaller details.” He is, he says, a travel photographer turned resistance photographer, “a middle-aged white dude who is there mostly to listen.”
